    I forgot to eat today

    I guess since I had been drinking my protein and water throughout the day I didn't feel light- headed or anything. I had lunch in the fridge there (chicken salad) just totally forgot to eat it. I wasn't happy about forgetting as I know I need more calories but it felt so weird to know that I had actually forgotten about food. I guess it is fairly common though.
  5. K - this is such an odd thing for me. I'm 5 weeks post op and today was busy at work and simply forgot to eat. I realized when I was about to eat dinner. I did drink my protein shake an my chicken unjury and am now having my last protein drink. I just thought I would share because I have never forgotten to eat in my life.
  6. I agree - the Lean Body is pretty good. I can't drink premier but I can pure protein vanilla. The chocolate sometimes gives me digestive challenges. This week our meijer has pure protein products buy 2 get 1 free.

    One month out

    Today is my one month surgiversity. It has been great and lost 20 lbs pre-op and 22 post. My clothes are getting loose and I'm feeling energetic, walking most days and starting to lift light weights for upper body. . I haven't had any complications as of yet and am happy that I made this choice. Having this board to read was one encouraging piece or my pre- and post- op this far. Thanks all!
  10. Hi Jade, Good luck with your decision. My surgeons office requires a great deal of education. They go through each WLS option in great detail, including complication rates and "life after." They ask you to think about which surgery you are interested in and then individually discuss with surgeon. In my experience, the surgeon answered my remaining questions and asked me which surgery I wanted. I told him the sleeve and he said he thought that would be a good option for me. My point is that you have consultation with your surgeon before having to decide for sure. Good luck with your decision.

    Needing lots of support

    So many of us have been where you were. Some of us were strong like you and able to separate ourselves from the relationship while others took longer and had to overcome the challenges of feeling like our weight somehow made our significant other misbehave. I think it's important to know that your weight didn't make your fiancé sext other girls. He did that all by himself. You are a strong young woman making a choice for yourself - to become a healthy strong young woman. I applaud you and wish you the best. There are good guys out there and when it's time, you will find the one for you. . Congrats on your birthday and gift to yourself!
  12. I know you said you aren't comfortable talking to your surgeon - what about your pcp or gyno? From what my doc said in education sessions, getting pregnant this soon after surgery could be very dangerous. I know you must be really scared, and I wish you the best!!!

    My doctor does drains with everyone, but all doctors do not.
